G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd Coming To Target As An Exclusive?

by Jay Cochran
April 06, 2021
G.I. Joe Collector's worst fears seem to be coming to fruition as reports are coming out now suggesting that the long rumored upcoming 6" G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd figure will be a Target store Cobra Island exclusive.

The latest indication of this comes from a report made by HissTank.com saying they have evidence showing a figure listing with the codename Asteroid (F2790) is in fact Major Bludd and it will be a Target store exclusive. This report unfortunately corresponds with my own investigating for the Bludd figure, in that Target has been the only retailer here in the US that I have seen having the figure listed. The only thing that has given me pause in saying it's definitely a Target exclusive is that I've had more than one person tell me the product number seen in the Target system for it didn't match up with the ones used with the previous Cobra Island figures, suggesting perhaps it was a regular release and not a store exclusive.

Since Hisstank isn't clear on what they are basing their report on for declaring it a Target exclusive, I can't say how reliable their report really is, but again up until this point I've seen no other retailers showing that Major Bludd would be a figure they can offer in the US, hence leaving the most likely outcome of it being a store exclusive. And if Hisstank is correct, that this is a figure already arriving in the US at the shipping ports, I think it's safe to say other stores would have it in their systems by now if they were going to be carrying it.

I also don't think Bludd is the only figure coming to Target. In fact any non-movie figure Hasbro decides to reveal later this week during their Fan-Fest event is likely going to be a store exclusive.

Some have speculated that perhaps Hasbro will be able to offer some of these Target exclusives on their own Pulse website. I have know doubt that the UK version of Pulse will since there are no Target's in the UK, but we will have to see if Hasbro is able to allocate any for it's US site. Target might not be to inclined to allow Hasbro to carry one of their in-demand exclusives, but on the other hand I could see Hasbro trying to use these as incentive to get more people to pay to join their Premium service which is supposed to allow people first crack at buying stuff on their website. Yes that is seemingly the hobby we now live in today were a toy company wants you to pay them just have a better chance of being able to buy their products.

No matter what, the frustrating nightmare of trying to collect G.I. Joe Classified figures definitely looks like will continue outside of the movie product which I am sure will be much easier to find.

Of course until any or all of this is officially confirmed by Hasbro, we will treat it as RUMOR.

"Limited Stock" can mean there's one of something, but it can also be the case that there's nothing, and their inventory is off.

Yup, in my experience Limited Stock means don't bother.

Target this evening finally listed their Target exclusive G.I. Joe Classified Cobra Island Major Bludd figure on their website, but as you can imagine it sold out very quickly. Even though it says limit one per order, the Target cart was apparently allowing people to add 10 of them at a time.

Very nice but the only bad thing is that they are not available online...??

I just came from a couple Targets and saw 3 Cobra Commanders, 2 Flints, 1 Lady Jaye, and 2 Zartans and a couple of the repainted ones. This whole Cobra Island debacle is irritating. I went there to get a Rise of Evil 2pk from MOTU that the website clearly said they had "Limited Stock" of which means they have 1 and they told me they got 3 in and sold out a while back. In other words I just got lied to and the guy didn't know if he had it or not and didn't seem like he wanted to check in back (nor did I press him to do so). All very discouraging.

Piss off Hasbro and Mattel.

These Joes are looking so great, I was worried when the first three came out. They are really delivering. Well kinda. So hard to get. Hopefully it gets easier.

LOL, what a surprise. Good luck to those who are on the hunt for this one.
